Inhaltsangabe: In January 1996, Judy Molnar was six foot one, weighed 330 pounds, and was a size 26W. She didn't own a bike or a swimsuit. At her annual physical, after hearing the doctor's usual sermon about her weight, she accidentally saw the phrase "morbidly obese" written on her chart. Only then did Judy realize that she had to take some action or she might not be around for her next yearly exam. And on that day she set out to learn how to eat, exercise, and get into shape.
Having tried all of the traditional starve-yourself, go-for-the-burn programs that just left her drained and in pain (and ultimately made her eat more), Judy knew that she was going to have to create a program that worked for her. Over the course of two and a half years, through working with coaches, nutritionists, and trainers, she developed an incredible program that has helped her lose 130 pounds and 12 clothing sizes. In 1999, she even completed one of the most strenuous sporting events: the World Ironman Triathlon Championship in Hawaii. Television host Rosie O'Donnell heard about Judy's commitment to a healthy lifestyle and invited her to come on the show to share her story. Rosie was so inspired by her message--"Eat less and move more" --that she created a position for Judy on her show by making her the Official Chub Club Coach.
You Don't Have to Be Thin to Win is Judy's special recipe for health and fitness. She shows you everything from how to buy sneakers and how to find a way to move that works for your body and your time constraints to how to get through a grocery store and come out with foods that will make you a winner. And Judy is inspiring: Even if you feel that getting your body in shape is impossible, her story and many of the poignant success stories from her work as the Official Chub Club Coach will get you off the couch and moving. Judy's story and this program demonstrate that anyone--no matter what size, shape, or age--can lose weight and become healthy to enjoy a richer, fuller, and more active life.
Not just another fitness book
"In 1996, I got scared. I went to the doctor and learned that I was no longer fat, I was 'morbidly obese.' This was no longer about a dress size; this was life and death. And so I began an extraordinary journey from being a 330-pound sedentary woman who ate five or six doughnuts for breakfast to losing 130 pounds, getting fit enough to compete in the World Ironman Championship Triathlon in Hawaii, and becoming the Official Chub Club Coach for The Rosie O'Donnell Show. While I might not fit the conventional image of an athlete or fitness expert, I am healthy and hap-pier than I've ever been. I wrote this book for people who, like me, have tried every program from A to Z--diets, gyms, trainers --and are looking for real and realistic results. You Don't Have to Be Thin to Win tells my story, illustrates my program (the only one that has ever worked for me), and shows you how you, too, can win your health and life back."
Official Chub Club Coach
Rezension: Judy Molnar was always the tallest kid in the class and always played sports, mainly basketball and volleyball. By college, she was 6'1", 180 pounds, and very fit. Yet her coach saw her as "a large woman with a weight problem" and tried to put her on a 1,200 calorie diet to get her to an impossible 150 pounds. The result was that Molnar became scale-obsessed and started to hate training and working out. She quit sports, took a sedentary job after college, and ate herself up to a weight more than the 350 pounds her scale registered. You Don't Have to Be Thin to Win is the story of her "journey from the couch to the course" to reclaim her health, and her "personal recipe of goal setting, education, enthusiasm, and a fair bit of sweat." She shares excerpts from her journal about her triumphs, setbacks, and day-to-day efforts toward fitness. Her lifestyle completely changed--her fitness training became the center, and a few years after making her change, she was racing and doing triathlons. She dropped 130 pounds, went "from doughnut junkie to healthy and fit," and became Rosie O'Donnell's Chub Club coach. After telling her personal story, she helps you move more and eat better with motivational strategies, tips for getting in shape, descriptions of a few different activities and how to start, and nutritional facts. This book is so motivating that you're likely to get up from the couch and read it on the treadmill. --Joan Price
